A Spell in the Country by Heide Goody and Iain Grant @HeideGoody @IainMGrant #BlogTour @rararesources #Review

I'm delighted to be one of the stops on the blog tour for A Spell in the Country by Heide Goody and Iain Grant. Today I will be sharing my review but first of all let's take a look at the description for the book...

“Dee is a Good Witch but she wonders if she could be a better witch.
She wonders if there’s more to life than Disney movie marathons, eating a whole box of chocolates for dinner and brewing up potions in her bathtub. So when she’s offered a chance to go on a personal development course in the English countryside, she packs her bags, says goodbye to the Shelter for Unloved Animals charity shop and sets a course for self-improvement.

Caroline isn’t just a Good Witch, she’s a fricking awesome witch.
She likes to find the easy path through life: what her good looks can’t get for her, a few magic charms can. But she’s bored of being a waitress and needs something different in her life. So when a one night stand offers her a place on an all-expenses-paid residential course in a big old country house, she figures she’s got nothing to lose.

Jenny is a Wicked Witch. She just wishes she wasn’t.
On her fifteenth birthday, she got her first wart, her own imp and a Celine Dion CD. She still has the imp. She also has a barely controllable urge to eat human children which is socially awkward to say the least and not made any easier when a teenager on the run turns to her for help. With gangsters and bent cops on their trail, Jenny needs to find a place outside the city where they can lay low for a while.

For very different reasons, three very different witches end up on the same training course and land in a whole lot of trouble when they discover that there’s a reason why their free country break sounds too good to be true. Foul-mouthed imps, wererats, naked gardeners, tree monsters, ghosts and stampeding donkeys abound in a tale about discovering your inner witch.”

After reading the description for this book I couldn't wait to start reading and see where this story would take me. It really is like a whirlwind that picked me up and took me on quite a journey with Dee, Caroline and Jenny. There is a brilliant humour throughout that made me giggle and smile with the antics of this group of witches. A special mention has to go to Jizzimus as he was just hilarious, I loved him especially with his brilliant one liners. There are quite a few characters in the story but each one had a certain special type of personality that guarantees you will remember them.   

I had no idea what would happen next and to be honest it was so refreshing to just sit back and enjoy whatever was in store next. With a story that moves at a good pace sending the reader on a fun filled adventure. If you love magic, witches and funny but inappropriate imps then this story is definitely the one for you.

A Spell in the Country is fun, quirky and held my attention all the way through!

Four stars from me!

With thanks to Rachel at Rachel's Random Resources for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.

Heide Goody is the stupid one in the writing partnership and Iain Grant is the sensible one. Together, they are the authors of seven novels, two short story collections and a novella.

The ‘Clovenhoof’ series (in which Satan loses his job and has to move to Birmingham) has recently been optioned by a Hollywood production company. Their latest novel, Oddjobs 2: this time it’s personnel, was published in August 2017.

Heide and Iain are both married, but not to each other.
